Breakfast on the PatioWe started off our morning with breakfast on the patio at our hotel (Avenue Hotel), which was my favourite morning by far. As much as it was a little bit breezy to be out there, we were determined to enjoy the moments of sunshine whilst we could! And I mean, hey, we're hardy Scots after all..
National Museum of DenmarkAfter tucking into breakfast, it was time to get ready and head to the National Museum of Denmark to meet up with Gillian's friend Calum and while away the afternoon exploring Danish (and other nationalities', for that matter) history. Here are a few photos from the afternoon..

Japanese PhotoboothWe found this amazing Japanese photobooth in the temporary Cosplayer! Manga Youth exhibition which was a pretty hilarious 10 minutes of our day.. suffice to say just looking at our photobooth strips still sets us off laughing to this day. My first experience with a Japanese photobooth was certainly a memorable one..
|The final hilarious outcome. Particularly enjoying Gillian's makeshift tiara.|
CocktailsAfter about 3 hours of pure museum geeking out, we decided to head for a few drinks at Munter (yep, "munter". I'm sure fellow Brits will appreciate this, as did the English man behind the bar who we asked if it was intentional.. nope! It actually means "cheerful" in Danish. So now you know..). Anyway, £10 for 4 mojitos was a-ok with us, particularly by Danish standards. Admittedly, we even ended up there once more after dinner..
ShoppingMant (Strædet, Læderstrædet 30, 1201), which is pretty much Pinterest gold. Think potted succulents, copper accessories, independent designer goods and pretty cards.. A recommended stop if you want to find a hidden gem in amongst the crowds.
BurgersPost-shopping, we headed for dinner at Cock's and Cows. I mean, you didn't think #burgerlovinbabes would head to Copenhagen without at least trying out one burger, did you? And it seems we picked a good one! If you're as much of a burger lover as us, I can certainly recommend Cock's and Cows next time you're in Denmark. All the usual tasty options are on the menu and we went away extremely full but satisfied.
Hint: Don't think ordering a side of fries each is a great idea.. we only finished one of these. But hey-ho! The curly fries were just such a nostalgic draw..

Tivoli GardensAfter a few more drinks, it was time to make our way to Tivoli Gardens to see what the fuss is about!
We even met a lovely peacock and his babies.. cute! Cue a million selfie opportunities on Snapchat.
